Today the mafia are building a new landscape in the North, which is to say they are formulating spatial rules in which land is no longer a public asset. It is generating a new economy - it is fuelling new property processes through new urbanisation, sub-contracts and earth movement - by supporting ‘plans’ in which increasingly more areas are being classified as for building. The reconstruction of this metamorphosis by looking at signs and traces, experiences and news stories is the premise for a new assumption of responsibility.
